Eat Sleep Play Says 'At The Moment No Plans To Open Beta To Public'

TGH Writes: "Recently at an event we got a chance to sit down with one of the producers for Twisted Metal. We decided to ask them regarding the chances of a much wanted beta for the upcoming high-profile title. We were surprised by the answer we actually received."

Looking forward to this game it's looking great.

Maybe it's just me, but money's kinda tight and there are already alot of games I want to get....and with that, only the BEST OF THE BEST is going to get my $$, and 2 of those games are UNCHARTED 3, and BATTLEFIELD 3....first day buys for me in fact.
Why am I gonna buy those with my limited budget of approx $200 for myself around christmas time?

Because I KNOW those games are sure bets.....I don't even have to guess, and both of those have or will have a beta.

As much as I'm a fan of Twisted Metal 1 and 2 from the PS1 days, unfortunately, Twisted Metal 2011 isn't the sure bet Uncharted 3 and BF3 are.

If there's not beta, it's possible I might have to skip it for Christmas time and go with Skyrim.`

Beta =/= Demo

A beta is just meant to iron out any issues a game might have. It still doesn't ensure quality (MoH for example still had issues with MP).

They could always have a demo without having a beta... unlikely, but possible.
Then again, it's a TwistedMetal game, so I'd expect the general formula to be the same.
I'd expect Beta/Demo to be important for a new IP, but with a game like Uncharted3, is a beta really necessary to seal the deal? O.o

Urrakia343615d ago

But they are having a beta for the game, it's just going to be a closed beta. Also, it kind of seems like you are confusing a "beta" with a "demo".

blumatt3615d ago

I'd say Twisted Metal is a "sure bet" because Jaffe doesn't make crappy games. God of War 3 is proof of that. The new online multiplayer looks awesome. That "Nuke" mode looked cool as hell when they showed it at E3 2010.

ddurand13615d ago (Edited 3615d ago )


its people like you that deter companies from providing open betas.

ShadyDevil3615d ago

Alright to clarify... Jaffe had nothing to do with God Of War 3. Just saying. Get it right.

blumatt3615d ago

LOL Oops. I don't know why I said that. So many first party studios to learn about when you're talking about Sony that I sometimes get them confused. haha

TheLastGuardian3615d ago (Edited 3615d ago )

Twisted Metal? Bu but, there's soooo many other games coming out.

Screw the other games. Twisted Metal should be the first game you pre order. Twisted Metal might not have as big of a fanbase as Battlefield or Uncharted but that doesn't make it less of a game.

Your right that it's stupid not to have an open beta for Twisted Metal. I mean why would the biggest multiplayer game of the year not have an open beta?

If Twisted Metal isn't a sure bet I don't know what is. I don't understand how anyone can doubt that Twisted Metal will be amazing. This game just has everything going for it. It's a great series coming to a great platform by great developers who are willing to work overtime to ensure it's the best game in the series. Some people are just too hard to please.

Give me the frikken thing now! >:( TM NaOW!

rekcahdam3615d ago

Man they're really keeping this thing under wraps aren't they?! I cant wait for this game. It'll break up the monotony that is the US game AAA game industry right now...

ShadyDevil3615d ago

I have to agree with that statement, everything is all about realistic racers or hardcore FPS titles. Twisted Metal is about blowing S**T up and having fun.Gotta love it.

Cereal3615d ago

They butchered Mr. Grimm harder than Cole from Infamous 2.

SoapShoes3615d ago

Mr. Grimm always had different looks to him. He was the Grim Reaper in the cartoony ones and a war vet in Black. I don't think they did anything out of the ordinary.

MsclMexican3615d ago

Thats a shame

I never played a Twisted Metal game before and I was hoping to try a beta or demo before I decided to buy the game, I guess I have to wait and see

Urrakia343615d ago (Edited 3615d ago )

This might sound a little dumb but if you're that curious as to how a Twisted Metal game plays you could always buy Twisted Metal 2 off the PS Store. The gameplay has remained pretty much unchanged throughout the series so just imagine that gameplay with all the improvements and waaaay better graphics.
